R.V. stands for Repair Vehicle

I've owned and been around campers, trailers and motorhomes most of my life. Every time something breaks, it reminds me of what my ole friend Bill told me years ago. R.V. stands for REPAIR VEHICLE. I'm sure you can all relate. Reading all the input on this site sure does confirm it.

Irv2 = "I REPAIR VEHICLES TOO".

You hit the nail on the head right there Monaco Wolfy. Good thing most of us enjoy working on our coaches. I more so like working to make things better, not so much fixing things that broke. All part of the fun I guess.

Chad

One of the reasons to buy an RV is that you don't have enough things to repair at home.

^^ EXACTLY - AND, if you're really bored and have a lot of free time on your hands, buy a used one....

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

Just when I thought everything was working well. I turned on the electric fireplace today and the fan is making some strange noise.

All I can say about the person who owns an RV and says they have nothing to do is:
ignorance is bliss.

My wife and I inherited a 1997 39ft dp about 7 months ago... And that was about the last time we saw each other bc "the mistress" as the wife calls it now has consumed my life... One fix then two broke. Fix those two, then two more. Vicious cycle.....

I thought the "Fix It List" was getting shorter until I noticed a puddle of red under my rear hydraulic slide hoses. Oh well! My DW thinks that I like doing this. She's probably right but I ain't admitting anything.
